    THE west Cork artists no reserves auction in Skibbereen on Sunday, July 31 is arousing considerable interest.  The sale of 111 lots by locally based artists is wide ranging and timed to coincide with the August Bank Holiday weekend height of the holiday season in the area. It follows two no reserves studio sales by Morgan O’Driscoll already this year.  Each one of these proved to be popular and demonstrated that, even in the teeth of a major recession, Irish people will purchase the work of artists if the price is considered to be right.

    Here is some more of what is on offer on Sunday (see post for July 15):-

    John Minihan (b.1946) 'Al Pacino Photographed at the Duke of York Theatre, London, 1984' is estimated at 800-1,400. UPDATE: THIS MADE 225

    John Minihan (b.1946) 'Pierre Cardin Photographed Outside Maxims, Paris, 1985' (800-1,400). UPDATE: THIS MADE 275
